As promised by Elon Musk, the update also delivers a closer look at Full Self Driving. The FSD upgrade brings new features including improved road sign reading, as well as visualizations displaying stoplights, stop signs and selected road markings alongside the ability to view text messages as display cards that you can respond to using voice commands.
